Easy like Sunday morning
This apartment was not a great fit for our needs. We found that it lacked the amenities of a hotel or the welcoming features of someone's home and was more like a private hostel. The apartment was large and very clean but pretty beat up (loose tiles in the floor, holes in the wall, dirty couch) and had very bare bones amenities (there was a bath towel and sheets, but bring your own wash cloths, hand towels, blow dryer, etc.). We never met Blake, but she was easy to reach by text message and was responsive and willing to pay for some essentials that the apartment was lacking (dish soap) if we purchased it. The apartment is on 4th Avenue - great location - easy for cabs/subway and close to great shops & restaurants, just be aware that this means that it is also very noisy. All in all not one that we would recommend to a friend or anyone traveling with children.
Blake (email hidden), very communicative and helpful and incredible support. The apartment was very clean and is very spacious and convenient. The neighborhood is fantastic as the subway with multiple lines to Manhattan.Highly recommended all. We had a great stay.
We had a good stay at Blake's apartment in Park Slope. We checked in late on a Monday night, check in was smooth, and we were able to settle right in for the night. The apartment is large enough to accommodate 3 people (although 1 person will need to sleep on a couch or the floor), with a big kitchen space and living room space. Blake provided a lot of information about the apartment and the neighborhood, so we didn't have any questions. The only downside to the apartment is that the bedroom looks over 4th Avenue, which is busy at all hours. So it's best to bring earplugs to get a good night's sleep! Other than that it (email hidden), and I would recommend it to non-light sleepers...
My boyfriend and I stayed here for Easter weekend. Blake (email hidden). It was easy to meet up with her to get the keys and she was always available to give a restaurant recommendation. The apartment was excellent. Very spacious, clean, and had all the things we needed (kitchen tools, towels, internet, etc.). It was close to lots of nice shops and restaurants as well as the subway with multiple lines to Manhattan. You can hear the street noise in the bedroom but it didn't prevent me from sleeping and the blinds were quite effective. I would definitely recommend this place and host!
Blake (email hidden), very communicative and helpful. The apartment was very clean and is very spacious and convenient.
I would recommend Blake to anyone who wishes to stay in Brooklyn.
Clean and cozy apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn. All the services you need are close. The area has a nice atmosphere and as a first timer in NYC living at Blake's place was a very good experience. The street has loud traffic but after a while even we Finns got used to it. Blake was very friendly and helpful all the time!
This was a great base of operations for us. The neighborhood is fantastic (wander up to 5th to find a number of great bars and restaurants). The apartment was clean and simple which was perfect for us. Kitchen is well stocked with plates, dishes, cooking vessels, etc. It was just my wife and I but could have accommodated more. Good communication. Strongly recommend. Thanks! Blake
Had a great stay at Blake's place. Cozy, clean apartment (bigger than most hotels I've stayed in NYC) that was the perfect base for exploring Brooklyn and New York. It was easy to find parking and a quick walk to the subway to get around. Super close to lots of cute shops and coffee shops in Park Slope as well as Prospect Park for a stroll.
Notre séjour à New-York était superbe !
L'appartement de Blake est très confortable, bien equipé, et très bien décoré.
La station "Atlantic Avenue" est desservie par de nombreux métros, qui circulent jour et nuit.
Blake est une hôte parfaite, ell nous a donné de nombreuses instructions précises, et nous n'avons pas eu besoin de nous rencontrer. Elle répondait directement et très rapidement a chaque mail.
Je recommande cet appartement, mais comme il est précisé dans l'annonce, la 4ème avenue est bruyante et il n'y a pas de double vitrage: beaucoup de bruit de la rue depuis la chambre. Les fenêtres étaient mal isolées et laissaient passer un peu le froid mais le chauffage permettait de combler.
Bonne alternative économique pour séjourner à New York !
Blake was really (email hidden) who responded quickly and was very organised. She made sure we got into the apartment and everything. The place was a little shabbier than the photos make it look, but comfortable, and close to the Atlantic Ave subway and Park Slope shops. We'd recommend it!
Blake is a friendly individual. Very tidy and considerate.
Blake only stayed one night in our cottage, but she was a great guest: communicative, friendly, and clean. She went out if her way to make sure her late arrival time etc. wouldn't be a hassle, and it wasn't. Awesome!
Blake was the perfect guest! Easy to communicate with and left the place in wonderful condition. Would happily have her back again anytime.
Great guests. Totally recommend.
We love Blake & Neki, and their families are always welcome!
Blake spent the Memorial Day week end here at the property. She has very good energy and took good care of the unit . Blake is a very good guest and I would love to have her back.
It was great having Blake's family here, and we look forward to having them again soon!!!
